Impart claims its recent acquisition of content developer, Qantm Studio, has made it the largest e-learning integrator in Australia.
The acquisition increased staff numbers to more than 60 and boosted the company's chances when tendering with larger partners for major contracts, Impart CEO, Alex Smith, said.
In the past, Impart has partnered with LogicaCMG and Raytheon for tenders. It also bid successfully for an Australian Defence Organisation contract two months ago.
The Qantm buyout also brought more than 50 new customers to the new entity, including the Australian Army, and was complementary to Impart's existing base, Smith said. Qantm would continue to trade under its own name.
The merger will expand Impart's e-learning content, software and consulting business which Smith said was being used increasingly by time-poor staff for training needs.
"Large organisations are reducing cycle times to learn new skills and using e-learning more and more," he said.
No redundancies were expected as a result of the merger with the Queensland-based developer, Smith said.
Key Qantm executives would join the Impart management team, he said.
Impart - a joint venture between Central Queensland University, Griffith University, m2m Corporation and the University of Wollongong - agreed earlier this month to become an exclusive reseller for the learning management software solutions of US-based Plateau Systems.
